Weather Alert Information


Dear Parent(s):

In the event of inclement weather, schools may be either canceled or be placed on a 2-hour delay.  This information will be announced on local television and radio stations.  An email will also be sent to those on the Parent Listserves. Parents will also receive a phone notification through the automated dialing system.  We try to make our determination by 6:00 a.m.  

On days when a 2-hour delay is in effect, schools and special programs will begin according to the schedule below.  Buses will pick up students at their regularly scheduled stops 2 hours later than their usual time (with the exception of P.M. Kindergarten, please see specific times below*).  All Private/Parochial transportation will also be delayed 2 hours.

In the event of inclement weather arriving after the start of the school day, students in elementary and middle school will not be released except upon direct contact with the parent or person(s) listed on the student’s emergency card.  If bus transportation cannot be provided, students will be kept at school until a parent can pick up their student.  

Please let us know if you have any questions.
